Overview

The Bald Faced Stag Hotel is one of the oldest pubs in Sydney. The venue is steeped in history dating back to the 1830's and 1840's. Today we offer a variety of entertainment including live jazz, country, karaoke and blues music as well as pool tables, video jukeboxes, Texas Hold'em poker games, state of the art gaming and full TAB facilities. We have live music every weekend featuring grass roots and major artists from both Australia and many internationals. The Bald Faced Stag is known as the home of heavy music in Sydney and we will continue to bring the biggest and best to our stage! Located in the heart of the Inner West, if good music, good food, good people and a friendly atmosphere is what you are looking for then the Bald Faced Stag Hotel is the pub for you.

I went there and I got really surprised with the very nice staff and reasonably priced beer (when compared to other places in Sydney). The concert area has a good size and nice acoustics. Really nice!

The Bald Faced Stag is one of my favourite live venues in Sydney. Lots of beers and great sound it's a good way to support live music!

Dropped in to watch some up and coming bands which served the area well. The main bar was a typical local pub not a lot happening with bistro food and tap beer. Karioko nights in the main bar aon Saturday nights are a hit.
